1

Part time employees who work 20 hours a week are not entitled to leave under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA).

Choose an answer
True
False

True.

The CFRA requires employees work 1250 hours in the 12 months preceding leave, and employees who only work 20 hours a week will only work 1040 hours in 12 months (20 hours x 52 weeks = 1040 hours).
2

The determination of whether an employee has worked 12 months for Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) eligibility purposes is determined at the time the employee makes the request for leave, not the time the employee anticipates going out on leave.

Choose an answer
True
False

False.

The 12 months of seniority required for FMLA leave is determined at the time they anticipate requiring leave, not when they make the request.
3

The determination of whether an employee has worked 1250 hours in the past twelve months for FMLA-eligibility purposes is determined at the time the employee anticipates going out on leave, not the time the employee makes the request.

Choose an answer
True
False

True.

Whether the employee has worked the requisite 1250 hours is to be determined when the employee anticipates the need for leave, not at the time the request is made.
4

The determination of whether an employee works at a site with 50 or more employees within 75 miles for FMLA-eligibility purposes is made at the time the employee anticipates needing the leave, not when the employee makes the request.

Choose an answer
True
False

False.

The determination of eligibility based on whether 50 or more employees work within 75 miles is made when the employee makes the request, not when the employee anticipates going out on leave.
5

If an employer does not have 50 or more employees within 75 miles, the employer is not subject to any requirements of the FMLA.

Choose an answer
True
False

False.

Employers with 50 or more employees, regardless of where those employees are located, are required to post the FMLA notice to their employees.
6

Employees who work from a home office more than 75 miles away from any of their employers’ offices are not entitled to leave under the FMLA.

Choose an answer
True
False

False.

FMLA regulations require that if telecommuters request leave, employers must consider their eligibility based on the office to which the telecommuters report or from which assignments are made—not the location of their home office.
7

Under the FMLA, employers need never factor in leased employees toward the total count of whether there are 50 or more employees within 75 miles.

Choose an answer
True
False

False.

If the joint employer doctrine applies, employers must count leased employees toward whether they are subject to the FMLA as well as whether there are 50 or more employees within 75 miles.
8

Leave to bond with a newborn under the FMLA expires 12 months after the child’s birth.

Choose an answer
True
False

True.

The employee’s right to bonding leave expires when the child turns one.
9

Under the FMLA, if employers fail to clarify how they calculate the 12-month period (within which employees may take 12 weeks of leave), employees may use the calculation method most favorable to them.

Choose an answer
True
False

True.

Employers may follow one of four methods for calculating leave and if they fail to specify which one they follow, employees may use the method most favorable to them.
10

Under the FMLA, the 26 weeks of leave employees may take to care for the serious injury or illness of service members start running the first day employees require such leave, regardless of how employers calculate the 12-month period.

Choose an answer
True
False

True.

FMLA regulations state that the 12-month period for injured servicemember leave runs from the first day employees require leave, regardless of how the employer calculates the 12-month period.
